A sub-zero Friday night adventure to Neue Galerie began with unearthing our chariot from a knee-high snow-plow drift. The Kandinsky show proved not so interesting, but the Klimt-filled permanent collection always appeals. Gustav is famous for his blue muumuu, which did not apparently hurt his luck with the ladies (he fathered a reported 14 children), and which he wore sans drawers. In his ribald honor at Café Sabarsky we had some Blaufränkisch red wine so dark they call it blue.
